AMMAN (AFP) - Four Jordanian students were killed when a missile exploded near their car as they were driving out of Mosul, in northern Iraq, to flee US and British bombardments, a government official said.

The official told AFP that the incident occurred Saturday night when the four Jordanian students "who were in Mosul were killed when a missile exploded near their car".

The four were preparing to leave Iraq, at the time of the incident, the official added. Jordan last week advised some 3,000 students enrolled in Iraqi universities to evacuate and most arrived two days later at the border.
